|Proposed New Parking Area~|
The last year or so has seen the advent of an influx of a few homeless tents, trash etc. just east of where the Whitehorse Trail converges with the Centennial. The park Rangers do their best to keep the mess picked up. The Sheriff's dept. has moved the squatters off on several occasions.
A private property owner has built a ramp up from the Cemex property to & over the Whitehorse Trail. One of the park Rangers, spoke to the managers of Cemex - to find that they are interested in increasing the availability of access for trail users. The hope is that with more use, the area will be less inviting to the homeless...
|Tent on private property~|
So, with diligent work & the prospective cooperation of the private, corporate & county entities - we may someday have a place to park that will give us access to the length of the Whitehorse Trail going east toward Darrington & the Centennial Trail - for almost 7-miles north to the Nakashima trail-head. Both beautiful stretches of trail well suited for horses. Fingers Crossed!
